2.15: What Could It Be?

Oh my God.

I don’t want to jinx myself or anything, but… I think I might have some pretty exciting news to share. Or at least, I will soon!

Okay, wait. Before I get too far ahead of myself, let me explain.

Tonight, while I was sitting and watching one of Gabriela’s dumb little kiddie shows with her, my phone went off. And of course I knew right away who it was, before I even looked at the screen. I mean, who else would it be?


Anyway, Diego invited me up to The Bluffs tomorrow after work, just the two of us.

Normally that wouldn’t be a big deal… I mean, we go out together all the time. Or whenever we can, at least. Having “real” jobs can make scheduling dates a bit trickier… But we’ve been doing pretty well since graduation.

I guess what made it interesting is that we haven’t gone to The Bluffs together in a long time. I’ve always loved it there. It’s beautiful, secluded, serene… and it was the spot where we had our first date just over three years ago.

Why would we go there all of a sudden, after all this time? Kinda weird, right? I tried to tell myself not to read too much into it. But it’s hard.

I mean, it’s like I’ve been saying the last few times I’ve written – things are getting more and more intense between us lately. Of course, we still haven’t had sex yet. Not officially. But we’ve done some other things. Things we’ve never done before. Things that are terrifying and amazing and, well…


The point is, I finally feel ready for the real thing. And I think Diego knows it too.

So at first I was thinking he might be planning to, well… Finally go all the way. And, to be honest, I sorta think doing it outside would maybe be a little weird. But also kinda exciting too, I guess. So maybe I’d be okay with it after all. Maybe even more than okay, actually…

Anyway, I felt so sure that was what it was. And it still could be, for all I know.

But tonight after dinner, dad helped me think of another possibility.

He overheard me telling Gabriela (for probably the third time…) what Diego had texted me about earlier.


Then he turned to mãe with that mushy smile he always gives her and said, “The Bluffs? That’s where I proposed, remember? 25 years ago next month…”

Could this seriously mean what I think it means?!

Diego and I just celebrated our anniversary a couple of weeks ago. And The Bluffs have always been a really special place to the two of us. And I’m only a year younger than mãe and dad were when they got engaged…

Okay, okay, I’m stopping myself right there! I’m trying so hard not to jump to any conclusions yet. Guess I’ll find out for sure tomorrow!

For now, the one thing I do know is that whatever it is, it will be amazing.

  1. So excited for the next chapter! 🙂 Hopefully Diego does propose, I bet it would be so romantic! ❤

    It reminds me of one of the chapter when she was ten and she said that Diego would be the one she married. 🙂 Wonderful part!

      1. Lol, thank you! The nickname is from a friend of mine named Maren. And she’s our little bunny (I’m the wolf). I thought it suited Mari, just a little bit. That’s probably what I’m gonna call her from now on… Mar-mar. :3

    1. Hi! Welcome! ^_^ And thank you SO much for checking out my legacy after you finished D2D! I really appreciate you taking the time to read both stories 🙂 And I’m sorry I’ve trained you to expect the worst hehehe 😛 Thank you again!!!


  4. Aw, look at Mari all grown up! I really really hope that the next chapter is a happy one. I love the mostly light-heartedness of your chapters, and the length – they are so easy to read because of how well you’ve written them. You said somewhere that later chapters get longer in length and have way more drama, but I’m excited for that because these earlier chapters have hooked me in! ❤
